Pancreatitis in dogs can be a painful condition, especially in the period immediately after eating. It is believed that restricting the fat/oil content of the food minimises this post-prandial discomfort. There are fully balanced complete veterinary prescription diets specifically designed for dogs with pancreatitis, but not all dogs will take those readily. It is possible to achieve the low fat requirement using Naturo petfood by aiming for a fat/crude oil level of around 7%. This means diluting the Naturo petfood with further carbohydrates such as potato, rice or pasta. A simple maths calculation will allow determination of amount of carbohydrate to add. For example if the wet food crude fat/oil level is 14% then mixing in carbohydrates at 50:50 will create a safe level.
